Ah, me. This week is Thanksgiving and what am I grateful for? Oh, not now, I’m not ready for that post- we’ll get back to that in a bit. Much as the husband and I would just love to stay home, eat all the food ourselves and watch the parade, it is our jobs to enrich the lives of others with our presence and my husbands killah grub. The man is a serious chef- I am blessed. There you go- the first thing I am thankful for- Mr B, my sweetie.Our Thanksgiving night stop on the holiday tour was our dear friends house for casual gluttony. I wore my new Butterick 5679 tunic and I’m very pleased with it. I spin for you: Not much deviation from the pattern here, I am not 100% thrilled with how the woodgy back neck laid down for my stitching assault- it may get a redo today. See the glassy look? I was having trouble locating my inner camera whore with the neighbors gathering on their deck over a turkey fryer. The dachshunds were unhinged at their lack of safety protocols in place! teutonic hounds are quite rigid about such things.Gees!? I look like the well-upholstered prow of a vintage cruise ship! I love it! This will become a goto pattern once I conquer that neckline, I love how this moves.Yes, if you are curious, it is a Charlie Chaplin pendant, one of my favorite silly purchases!
I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving if you are in the US or just a lovely friday otherwise. I’m off to hide in the sewing room, I have another try at Anouk on the table- Theresa and Kazz keep making me think that I gave up too soon. I also have a frankenpattern- my first- planned- to wear to see Mary Poppins in a few weeks- so send prayers and patience my way!
